  • NCAT Study: Ground Tire Rubber Provides Cost-Effective Alternative to Oil-Derived Polymers for Asphalt

    The National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT) today announced the results of a study evaluating the role of ground tire rubber powder in asphalt mixture performance. Debunking a common industry belief, the study indicates that the asphalt manufacturing process, whether cryogenic or ambient, does not impact the performance of the rubber material or, ultimately, ...

  • Calciner firing of refuse derived fuels

    Alternative or refuse derived fuels (RDF) are mainly fired in kiln burners, preheater or calciner kilns. Of the greatest importance in this regard is homogenous fuel quality consisting of two-dimensional parts. Alternative fuel for the kiln burner has to be free of disruptive fractions (e.g. metals, stones, glass), which might cause problems in the feeding equipment or the burner itself. ...

  • More effective cement production: New sampling plant makes the determination of the quality of refuse derived fuel possible

    Until now an employee had to manually remove RDF materials from the feed and bring it to the laboratory for shredding and reduction”, explained Peter Kraihamer who is responsible at Leube for maintenance, planning and safety. The problem with this was the following: “Every employee took different quantities of material in differing numbers and at differing times. Therefore it was not ...

  • New sustainable `bio-derived` jet fuel industry is achievable

    The report, Flight Path to Sustainable Aviation, predicts that over the next 20 years a new, sustainable, Australia-New Zealand aviation fuels industry could cut greenhouse gas emissions by 17 per cent, generate more than 12,000 jobs and reduce Australia’s reliance on aviation fuel imports by $2 billion per annum. "This study highlights promising options for the aviation industry," said the ...

  • Tire playgrounds, not tire piles

    Each year, about 26% of discarded tires are ground up to create new surfaces for athletic fields, running tracks, and playgrounds or to be mixed into road asphalt. Another 62% are turned into other products or used as fuel. Overall, that’s about 88% of discarded tires that are reused and recycled! ...

  • Fuel from fuel: converting biodiesel waste into ethanol

    Researchers have discovered that under the correct conditions, glycerol, a major by-product of biodiesel production, can be turned into ethanol by harmless strains of the bacterium Escherichia coli. Furthermore, yields of ethanol obtained from this method are higher than those obtained from conventional means of production. As society looks for alternative sources of energy to replace the use of ...

  • Invest in `green` biomass fuels

    With the right policies and investment in research, developing nations can turn their dependence on biomass fuels into a renewable and sustainable energy supply, says Duncan Macqueen. Fuels derived from biomass — mainly wood, but also plant and animal matter — produce lower greenhouse gas emissions than fossil fuels, and can be converted into heat, electricity, liquid or gas. Yet they ...

  • Fuel produced from sunlight, CO2 and water: an alternative for jet fuel?

    Water and carbon dioxide (CO2) can be converted into ‘solar thermochemical fuel’ using energy from the sun and very high temperatures. A new study has analysed the production of this fuel and found that, under favourable future conditions, costs could be as little as €1.28 per litre, with close to zero life-cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Although suitable as a substitute ...

  • All about tire recycling

    Modern civilization cannot live without rubber goods, and only waste rubber, in particular tires, we seem to be iniquity. Meanwhile, they can also be very useful to humanity as a source of energy. The tire laid in a landfill (often bypassing environmental laws), is decomposed in a natural way more than 100 years. Contact of the tire with water (rainfall) leads to leaching of toxic organic ...
